Christian Churches the Target of Terror Attacks in Egypt

Spread the love


The brewing violence on religious grounds is stirring to say the least. In Egypt, bomb attacks at two Coptic churches carried out by suicide bombers with at least 36 people killed on Palm Sunday (Palmsonntag) and more than 100 were injured. This is the most serious attacks on the Christian minority in Egypt in many years and will no doubt lead to more religious civil unrest.

The first church to be hit was St. Georg in the northern Egyptian city of Tanta where at least 25 people were killed and 78 injured. The terrorists used the Christian holiday to make sure they killed as many Christians as possible. St. George is the largest Christian church in the region of the Nile Delta. Videos streaming on the Internet and broadcast on TV showed a blood-stained ground.

The Video was taken by others cheering and the Cross was toppled from the Church as they yelled “Allahu Akbar“, which is not going to be good moving forward in time.
